PVC storage racks are a great way to add some extra storage to your home anywhere you have an open area. Instead of just stacking plastic totes we can build a PVC Storage rack structure to neatly and safely hold them in a much more organized way. If your plastic totes are in a pvc storage rack it will be much quicker, easier, and safer to get at the ones you want without having to move entire stacks of totes. The great thing about building your own storage racks is that, just like with every other pvc project here at pvcpipeandtubing.com, you can CUSTOMIZE it to fit your needs and your space. You can decide what size and brand plastic totes you want to use and then build your pvc racks to match them. You also can make more efficient use of unused space in your home by custom fitting your pvc storage racks to the size of the space available.
Instead of giving you specific plans to build your own pvc racks, I will show some examples of what kind of different ways we can build them for our own particular needs. Some may need longer, shorter storage racks for a crawlspace or attic, others may need one tall rack for the corner of a garage. I will give some examples of what I think are the best designs and building guides and you can get an idea for yourself what kind of solution will work best for you.
This first video is for a smaller rack and smaller plastic totes. This would be good for craft supplies or storing anything smaller in a small space. It is a very good guide that shows you step by step how to build this small pvc storage rack. Even if you are planning on building a larger storage rack I suggest watching this quick video to get some tips on planning the structure.
This is a great how to video showing you how to build a larger sized rack for larger totes. This is a very common and useful size rack to build because you can put many different things in the larger totes. In my garage we have, Halloween costumes, sports equipment, Christmas decorations, and all of our inflatable water toys safely stored away in one rack about this size. This video is very thorough at explaining details and I highly recommend it.
This last video shows a pvc rack built for a more specific purpose, holding disc golf discs. This video shows how a strong and sturdy storage rack can be built for just about anything out of PVC pipe. If you have a large number of similar sized objects like this a custom built pvc rack could be the perfect solution.
Now that you have seen several examples of affordable and practical pvc storage rack designs, start building your own! We would love to see your projects and as always we welcome suggestions on future projects to cover or tips and improvements on previous projects.
